Project Title: 
LabPhone 15 - Speech Dynamics and Phonological Representation
Project Abstract: 
This grant will co-sponsor The 15th Conference in Laboratory Phonology (LabPhon15) to be hosted by the Department of Linguistics at Cornell, July 13-16, 2016. This biennial conference has emerged as a major international meeting for researchers taking experimental approaches to phonology. The linguistic sub discipline of phonology is concerned with the similarities and differences that underlie languages of the world. Because phonological theories are evaluated on their ability to account for phenomena observed in any language, phonology is an inherently international discipline in which some of the most important findings emerge from researchers across the globe documenting understudied languages.
